How long does drool rash associated with teething last?

How long does drool rash associated with teething last?

It depends: Any rash will last as long as the cause is present. Some good ways to deal with teething pain are teething rings or frozen wash clothes. Use tylenol (acetaminophen) for severe teething discomfort only. Try applying neosporin to the rash and keep the area clean wiping away saliva frequently. ...Read more

My baby has what appears to be a drool rash on her chest, i've tried lotions, ointments, powder & she wears a bib 24/7. But nothing works. ?

My baby has what appears to be a drool rash on her chest, i've tried lotions, ointments, powder & she wears a bib 24/7. But nothing works. ?

Possible causes: You are right in thinking that drool can irritate the skin. It is common for babies to have irritant rashes on the chin, neck, and chest as a result. Vaseline normally works well if used frequently. For an area which stays damp, a yeast rash is also possible. I would suggest checking with her pediatrician and get their input or have her seen if it persists. ...Read more

My 9 y/o son was diagnosis w/erythema multiforme. He takes xyzal (levocetirizine) to keep the rash minimal but this has lasted 3 mo. Does EM last this long?

My 9 y/o son was diagnosis w/erythema multiforme. He takes xyzal (levocetirizine) to keep the rash minimal but this has lasted 3 mo. Does EM last this long?

Allergy?: Erythema multiforme may be from an allergy to medications, or a viral infection which lasts 2-6 weeks if it is mild. If it's worse by now you may want to see your doctor again. Here is a handout on EM: http://www.wikidoc.org/index.php/Erythema_multiforme_%28patient_information%29 ...Read more

Itchy thighs & calves. No rash & not red. Itchy at night. If i itch long enough i get small white dots. Child sleeps with me no signs. Had it for 1 mo?

A few things: It is hard to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. It may be eczema or you may be having an allergic reaction to something, you may be having a reaction due to a change in your detergent or something like that. If you would like to make an appointment with me i can give you a proper diagnosis and give you some meds to relieve your symptoms. ...Read more

Diarrhea : Diarrhea and other symptoms like runny nose, low grade fevers, coughs are not caused by teething - they are usually caused by viruses or bacteria, and sometimes by becoming intolerant to the formula u might be using. Usually diarrhea become better by themselves in about 5-7 days. If u r worried have the infant seen by a pediatrician. ...Read more

3 mo old drooling a lot for past 2 weeks.. What can be the problem.

3 mo old drooling a lot for past 2 weeks.. What can be the problem.

No social conscience: Babies sit in poo, wear spit up on clothes & drool a lot because they don't have any reason not to. Often they have found that putting things on their lips & mouth gives them pleasure & this increases drooling. Some feel it is a reflection of teething but i'm not convinced that matters. ...Read more

13 mo old had a fever 102-103.9 for 3 days now her temp is down to 100.5, but she's very still cranky, fussy, clingy & drooling.  Should  I worry?

See your doctor: Have you been to her doctor yet? Maybe there is an infection in her ear or her throat or somewhere else, and her doctor could give her something that will make her feel better. Or maybe this is a virus that will run its course. There are two ways to tell: you can give it more time, but you run the risk of worsening infection, or you could get a doc who knows the difference to examine her. ...Read more

4 mo boy exclusive breastfeeding. Has rashes on face every time when mom eats prawns or shell seafood. Allergy? Coincidence?

4 mo boy exclusive breastfeeding. Has rashes on face every time when mom eats prawns or shell seafood. Allergy? Coincidence?

No: Since breast milk does deliver some food allergens consumed by the mother, it is not a coincidence if this happens every time you ate shellfish. I would suggest that you avoid shellfish or discontinue breastfeeding. At age 4 months, it is also time to introduce table foods (no shellfish) to the child's diet since this may actually reduce the risk of developing yet more food allergies. ...Read more

7 mo old had gerber straw/ban ate 2 bites didn't like it. 4 hours later threw up worse than ever before while sleeping. Allergy? No rashes or fever.

Food Allergy: The only way to know is to have the child see an allergist for appropriate testing, for you to keep a diary, introduce foods slowly and one new food per week. There is also something known as food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome (fpies) which is most worrisome bc the vomiting and diarrhea can lead to dehydration. Be safe for ur child and c ur allergist. ...Read more

My 3 mo has rashes on his chest, face&behind ears and my mother in law watch him for aday,she used triamcinolone ace0.1%.It works but is it safe 4him?

No, not safe: One day of use will not harm him but this is too strong of a steroid cream to use on a 3 month old. Please do not use any steroid cream on the baby unless it is prescribed by the doctor. Babies often have rashes and usually they resolve on their own. If they are severe please take him to see the doctor. ...Read more
